British Tunnelling Society calls for safety input26 March 2020
Great Britain – The British Tunnelling Society (BTS) has begun hosting key information from the Transforming Tunnel Safety (TTS) industry group on its website. The hope is that this will make it easier for “busy tunnellers” to quickly access what they need and disseminate it throughout the workforce.
TTS exists to share information on all tunnel-related health, safety and wellbeing issues. It comprises clients, contractors and consultants across the industry, and has worked closely with the BTS for the past few years.
BTS chair Ivor Thomas has written to companies to encourage submissions to the TTS so the resource will become more extensive and helpful over time. He said, “It is a huge opportunity for all of us to support this aim and to participate. To date we have a limited amount of information from only a few construction projects and we would welcome more from across our industry. It is time for an effective step-change. Health, safety and wellbeing are top priorities for all of us, and continual improvement of our performance in these areas is critical to us all.”

To promote sharing, parties that provide content will be recognised by having their logo added to a ‘contributors’ section of the website.
